WINTER 2021 YOUTH REC BASKETBALL REGISTRATION INFORMATION
Due to COVID-19 and the safety guidelines for youth sports put together by ERPR, our Winter Youth Basketball league will look a little different this year. The following guidelines will be followed (pending any changes before the season starts) for our league to run. Due to the ever-changing COVID-19 guidelines, this league may see changes or updates throughout the season. We will communicate any and all updates through email to all participants as soon as we can.
REGISTRATION TAKES PLACE ONLINE ONLY
COACHES ARE NEEDED
Volunteer coaches introduce participants to the fundamentals of playing basketball through practices and weekend games. The league emphasizes proper techniques, knowledge of the rules, team strategy, participation and fun!
